      I'm Vicki. I'm only 22, but I've had T for as long as I remember. In fact, I didn't realize it wasn't normal until I was around 10 years old.
      I've done plenty to aggravate this thing, headphones cranked up, going to concerts etc. Hell, my current job involves 60+ barking dogs, something even the best ear plugs cannot hope to compete with.
      I struggled with depression and GAD for a long time, and only recently discovered that they are also linked to T. My anti-depressants help take the edge off, but I find more and more lately the endless ringing drives me close to the edge of sanity. I'm just here to talk to people who get it.

      Hi Vicki!
      I'm 23 and I got T 9 years ago listening to loud music with shitty headphones. This holiday during a night out I forgot my earplugs and it got worse. It's louder now and stresses me out, the only relief I have is that it gets better with time as your life passes by. Try to live life at max and just life with the T. Hopefully they find a cure soon

      Has it improved? It could be just a "worry spike", I've had plenty of those. However, should you forget your earplugs, don't go out. You'll just end up regretting it.
